Unboxing: Influenster Spring Fling VoxBox May 2014

Hi guys, long time no see! i know its been forever since I’ve updated, so I’ll just hop right into it.

In my VoxBox this month, I received 6 products.

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara ($5.99)

If you know me at all, you know I’m obsessed with mascara. I’ve used it a few times and I’m different towards it. The wand is pretty large, a little too large for me, and has a curve to it. Right now, I feel like it’s a little too wet and does more clumping than anything else. Also, I does a fairly decent job lengthening, but as of right now, I’m not impressed with its volumizing capabilities.

Kiss Everlasting French Nails ($6.49)

This is the second Kiss product I’ve received from Influenster, but unlike the lashes, I’m not looking forward to these. I personally hate fake nails, so I won’t be using these. Instead I’ll either give them to a friend or cousin.

Peach Pie Car Freshener from the Labor Day Movie

This cute little extra gift is probably going to end up in my mom’s car since I don’t drive… Still…

Playtex Sports Fresh Balance ($3.99 – $4.99)

If I liked wearing tampons, I would have been thrilled to see this in this month’s box. The box is a set of 16, which is a really good number. Unfortunately, this is another item I will be giving away.

NIVEA Skin Firming Hydration Lotion ($2.49)

I haven’t tested this lotion out yet, but I hope it works. Since I’m only 18, I don’t need much help with “skin firming,” but I’m 99% sure I have Keratosis Pilaris, aka chicken skin. I’m hoping that the ingredients in this lotion will keep my skin moisturized and minimize the appearance of the “dots” on my skin. Unfortunately, this lotion isn’t the most pleasant smelling thing; it kinda smells like sunscreen and bug spray.

Softlips Cube ($3.49)

Generally, I’m a Chapstick person, but I’m still looking forward to test this out. This product is a 5 in 1 that is supposed to hydrate, replenish, smooth, protect, add shine. After coming back from Austin and floating on the Comal River for 4 hours, my lips were extremely dry. Since I’ve been home, I’ve been using this product, and I haven’t seen any changes to my dry lips. The scent of this reminds me of Smackers lips products, which isn’t bad, but gives it a kiddie feel(but hey at least it tastes good). One thing I do like however, is that it makes your lips tingle a little. With this product, I feel like Softlips tried to create something to rival the ESOS lip balms, since they’re all the rave lately. All in all, I’m not too impressed.

So that’s it for this quick unboxing. I know it’s a may box and we’re a week into July, but I’ve been really unmotivated lately. It really is a problem, but hopefully, I’ll get back into the groove of things soon.

Unboxing: Influenster J’adore VoxBox February 2014

Hey guys!

I hoped to do a cute v-day nail look and put it on here, but I never got to do my nails. What’s even worse, all my nails are breaking in the worst way. Once they get healthy again, I’m looking forward to getting a post out. Until then, I have two unboxing posts. This first unboxing is from Influenster. I heard about this FREE program on Youtube and decided to give it a try.

Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolate ($3.28)

I was really happy to see these included in the box! It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without Hershey’s Kisses. I remember when I was younger, actually, up until my sophomore year, I would make little goodie bags with Hershey’s Hugs and Kisses. No joke though, I could eat these everyday and never get sick of them.

Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask ($9.39)

DSC06248

 

Of all the items in this month’s box, I was looking forward to testing this one out the most. This product is a clay mask that “actively removes impurities and deeply cleanses” and should be used weekly. It also has a surprisingly watery consistency. If you shake the tube, you can hear it sloshing around, and it comes out more liquid-y than solid and creamy like most clay masks.  I’ve used this mask twice now and I must say it makes my skin feel really soft and doesn’t dry it out. I’ve only used it twice, and have yet to see any improvements to my skin.

Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray ($9.99 for 3.5 fl. oz )

DSC06259

 

I normally have stick straight hair, but then I cut it. Now that my hair is shorter and I have shorter layers, my hair does flip out a bit instead of laying straight. Though I have more of a reason to use it, I’ll probably just end up giving this product away because on “day 2”, my hair becomes naturally straight.

Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas ($4.49 for 20 tea bags)

DSC06263

 

Before this year, I was never much of a tea drinker. If I ever did drink tea, it was green because of all the antioxidants it provided. Now, I’m slowly but surely becoming a tea person. Unfortunately, it’s starting to get hot again in Texas, so my tea drinking will dissipate some, but hopefully the cold front comes in soon and I can keep cozy with a cup of tea and a book. When that time comes, I’m really looking forward to testing out these two flavors, Créme Caramel and Lemon Chiffon, because they sound absolutely delicious.

Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes ($3.99)

DSC06264

I’ve only worn fake lashes once before. I wore them for my senior portraits, and they were actually Kiss lashes. They looked beautiful in selfies, but looking at my actual senior pics, they were a little too heavy and dramatic. That makes me happy to try out these… maybe for prom…? As you can see, I got the lashes in Vamp, and they’re nice and long without being too much.

Overall, I was really happy with my first VoxBox! I enjoy that they send a variety of products, unlike other subscription services I use. Hopefully, I’ll get to test out more products in the future.
